The growth of composites in manufacturing is an increasing issue for Design teams. With all the variables around composite materials and processes, it can be daunting for engineers used to metals.

Whether you're adapting to changes in your supply chain or wishing to become more competitive, this course aims to demystify the approach to designing for composites.  We'll cover the link between design, manufacturing and materials and the most important factors you'll need to consider.

What we'll cover

  • Understanding the requirements for composite design manufacture
  • Key material consideration including:
    • Types of resin
    • Types of reinforcement
    • Selection criteria
  • Awareness of key manufacturing process consideration such as:
    • Scale
    • Rate
    • Cost

Who should attend

We recommend this course for design engineering teams and individuals who want to develop their knowledge in composite design principles.


  • 3 days, 3 hours per day (detailed above)


  • Individuals: £800
